The Wings Are On!

The Kids and I pose for a Celebration Pic!
Here the main spars are inserted and bolted with two 7/16" Hardware store bolts on each side. I don't want to use the permanent close tolerance NAS bolts until the final wing assembly at the airport.


The Wings are On! Man, that is a tight fit guys!

Everything is all leveled up and ready for attachment! We used four guys to get the job done.



Udo is giving the main spar edges a bevel with the file. This, along with a generous amount of Boelube, will aid in wing insertion. Make sure you lubricate the bolt shanks too...

Thanks Gordon! I'm one step closer to flying into Mountain Airpark in my very own plane...
